Egly-Ouriet 1er Cru Les Vignes De Vrigny NV

100% Meunier from a single 40-year-old, south-facing vineyard in Vrigny, a commune located on the Petite Montagne de Reims, next to Gueux, where Jérôme Prévost is based. Straight Meunier remains a relative rarity in Champagne; in Egly’s hands, it is something truly unique. Low yields, old vines and ripe fruit make this one of the most intense, layered and opulent Meunier wines kicking around. Bottled without filtration, the dosage for this bottling was a tiny two grams per litre. Taking in three great vintages for this grower, this is at least equal to last year’s wine (itself the best young Vignes de Vrigny we have tasted).

About the wine

Tasting notes

Intense, layered and opulent, fleshy and spicy. Remarkably hedonistic for Meunier yet also with wonderful brightness and saline freshness. It’s an exceptional rendition of this cuvée as you would expect from the vintages involved.
